The wonderful team in the alumni office approached me to design the illustrative front cover, to which of course we said a humongous 'yes'! They were keen to have something different to most alumni publications and show how the original colleges and universities across Cardiff have amalgamated into what is now Cardiff University. We discussed out collective ideas and the team were keen to visually represent the buildings as they are extremely distinctive to Cardiff alumni and would hopefully, if shown, bring back some happy memories for the readers. With this in mind, we decided to show a simple journey from each building to the new university and line the pathways with iconic Cardiff scenery and landmarks. As a resident of Cardiff it was a great to be able to visit, photograph (the buildings that are still standing) and illustrate them for the Cover of Cardiff Connect.
